Now, any graduate with no job would easily fall for this offer since it offers 15 to 45k and claims to be a foreign MNC.
However, having seen how the company works I request you to not waste your time in this career devastating thing.
Looking at the profile it never gives a slightest idea that we are going to be SALESMEN for the company. Yes, SALESMEN /SALESWOMEN.
These people try to fool people by giving a philosophical dose of how the company is gonna be a career building platform, or rather as they say the company is gonna let you start your own company.
1) Digest this- one of the company owner , a very young guy, says he is the owner of the company and says the APPCO group, uder which he has started the company lets him take away 98 % of profit share! APPCO will pay for all its expenses and will take away just two percent! How ridiculous!

2)They say they let you start your own company by the end of training (which they claim to be of mostly 1 year), but the fact that most of the employees are either Management Trainee (the entry level position) or a Business Head , itself makes it suspicious.

3) The selection process is too long which makes you think that maybe the company is genuine and is looking for Leaders- as they say.
1st Day – Interview if selected
2nd Day – Orientation- then Aptitude test- then Management Test- then Case study- and Interview once again at the end. If selected-
3rd Day- Field study- Now this is where the real work starts. They appoint a trainer with you and you go to any locality in mumbai doing sales. Going door to door, in commercial buildings, without appointments. Now , when I was in the “FIELD” observing my mentor how to do sales and stuff , we bump into one company and the company owner got furious and started abusing us for entering illegaly without an appointment-without permission. I was shit scared since a lot of owners in the commercial hub gathered and started grilling my ‘Trainer’ who was apparently teaching me the ethics of doing it. All of sudden, a security guy comes and slaps my trainer. Yes, THAT HAPPENED right in front of me. That is one scary incident I would never forget.
Again after this ‘Field work’ , there was again a Final Interview.

If you get selected , then they will tell you your salary structure and other things.

4) The salary range in the email itself makes you think that theres something fishy. Because you can have a range of 20 to 25 k, or 30 to 35k for the same post depending on a person’s qualifications. But here its 15 to 45 k. Ther is got to be someting fishy.

5) Candidates and not allowed to talk to each other while this selection process of 3 days is in progress. They purposely scatter chairs in a hall and make you sit at extreme corners so that you should not be able to talk with each others-even when you are not writing any test.
They have people who keep a watch on you while you leave their building area. That is freaking!

6)They have different sub compnies- named SPARK ,LEGION, DAWN, MILLENIUM, NIRVANA. Beware.
I urge all my fellow friends to please please please ignore this mail and the company and prevent yourself from this SALESMEN post.
